  • Almost all problems in computer vision are related in one form or another to the problem of estimating parameters from noisy data. In this tutorial, we present what is probably the most commonly used techniques for parameter estimation. These include linear least-squares (pseudo-inverse and eigen analysis); orthogonal least-squares; gradient-weighted least-squares; bias-corrected renormalization; Kalman filtering; and robust techniques (clustering, regression diagnostics, M-estimators, least… CONTINUE READING
